The village of Samagaoun lies between the Buddhi Gandakhi River and Manaslu, the world's eighth tallest mountain. In addition to agriculture and yak herding, Samagaoun has deep Tibetan cultural traditions, including a monastery complex with a unique heritage of spiritual teachings. Photographs in this collection were made on two visits, one before and one after the 2015 Gorkha quake devastated the area.
